Jun-11-10  elohah: 21 I cannot find, on a first look
( a very long look) what happens after 21 Qd4. Maybe 21...Qxd4 and then moving the knight in, maybe 21...Be2 ...
Jun-11-10  elohah: 22 Right. The rook couldn't go off the back row due to ...Qb1 (on a4, the WQ doesn't get back to g1), and if 22 Rg1 Bc5 can be played: 23 exf6 Bxg1 and ...Qb1 again. Yeah, he can throw in Ne7+ right after ...Bxg1. I'm guessing Black gets out of that somehow.
Jun-11-10  elohah: 33 Qg2 Qc5! nabs something.
Jun-11-10  elohah: 41 Yeah 41 Qxf7 would probably be answered by 41...Nf6! an effective door slammer.
